MotoGP – Fabio Quartararo (Yamaha) prepared his long lap during free-race training

Five weeks have passed. But they failed to understand. It was good to turn the issue around, and it was difficult to find a justification for the penalty that Fabio Quartararo will have to serve at Silverstone, Sunday, after he was penalized for an overly aggressive maneuver at Assen ahead of the summer break. The pilots didn’t understand either. Even the Frenchman’s direct rivals, Alex Espargaro and Francesco Bagnaia, expressed their disagreement on Thursday during the traditional press conference.
But what has happened has happened, and for the Frenchman, these five weeks have allowed him to digest. Hutt, he had stated that he was no longer trying such a transgression. “When he says it, I don’t think it’s truehis runner-up, Alex Espargaro, smiled.

Friday, during the first two training sessions, the “Diablo” did not get bored. If, the day before, he had ensured that he did not think too much about punishment, he still devotes a good part of his day to studying the problem. On Sunday, in the race, he will have to serve a “long lap”, that is, take a longer section of the circuit during one of the three laps following the streamers. Therefore, in order not to leave anything to chance, the Frenchman went there several times.

Goal ? Work on your path and directions to reduce wasting valuable time. During the first laps of the race, the peloton would still be grouped together and leaving two seconds on the road could therefore cause many lost positions, which would be difficult to regain on such a track with Yamaha’s lack of engine power. During his repeated testing, the Quartararo was able to find more confidence, up to a few tenths, while erasing the track to make it less dusty. Thus, Niçois should not lose more than two seconds on command.
